Our AGM on Sunday 6 September was a very special event. We thank all who attended, in-person & via Zoom - especially those who took the time to come on Father's Day.
Board Members stepping down this year include Justin Thompson, Marlene Levine and Penelope Thompson: Marlene Levine has given long service to the Board, and we have always been grateful for her input, and the fact that she will continue as a volunteer. Having been a Board Member since 2017, Justin Thompson has also resigned but will continue to assist with education. Penelope Thompson also leaves the Board this year, after reinvigorating our comms and media approaches. Our very grateful thanks to Justin, Marlene and Penny. Board Members staying on the Board are Deb Hart (Chair), Miriam Booman (Deputy Chair), Jeremy Smith (Treasurer), Giacomo Lichtner and Rivkah Nathan. New Members joining the Board are Diana Wichtel, Helene Ritchie and Marcus Blomquist. We welcome them and look forward to their contributions to HCNZ.
Life Memberships Conferred
At the AGM four Honorary Life Memberships were conferred. These were to Steven Sedley MNZM, Inge Woolf QSO, Boyd Klap CNZM QSO, and Ken Gorbey.
HCNZ is indebted to each of these amazing role models, for their dedication and commitment, transforming ideas into realities, and advocating for Holocaust education and remembrance in Aotearoa New Zealand.
